Skip to comments.Black Civil Rights Attorney rips Juan Williams a new one Over Zimmerman Case
Posted on 07/16/2013 9:30:04 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
To say Juan Williams and Leo Terrell disagreed on tonights Hannity would be a vast understatement. Terrell agreed with Fox News host Sean Hannity for the first time, ever about the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial.
Zimmerman was acquitted of murder for shooting teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. While he respects the verdict, Williams charged that it lacks a sense of wisdom or compassion for the fact of a dead child and the suffering that the parents and that community have gone through.
Terrell jumped at Williams comments, arguing that compassion doesnt belong in the courtroom. Shame on you, Juan Williams. Youre not a lawyer. Let me be clear, as a civil rights attorney, there was not a race case here at all and the jury got it right.

‘bout time Juan got a nationally televised smackdown. More to come?
Leo Terrell sounding intelligent. That was a first. Of course, even when he was right he had to sound like a screaming maniac.
Can’t Fox do better than Juan Williams and Alan Colmes? Or do all Libs appear that dumb?
Every once and a while even a screaming lunatic is correct.
I'd like to see how Juan would feel sitting at the defense table, in similar circumstance of Zimmerman, with a jury motivated by "a sense of wisdom or compassion ... and the suffering ... (of) parents and (the) community" rather than the facts of the case and the law.
The man shows know sense!
This wouldn’t be the first time my tinfoil hat has been a little tight on my head, but, is it just me, or is the “... it was not a race case; the jury got it right ...” meme spewing out of the mouths of those I half-expected to be saying the opposite indicative of some other ploy? Something’s up.
I am shocked, shocked that for once in his life Leo Terrell actually sounded like a human being. I think one of the reasons why he feels this way is he doesn’t want to get thrown in his face that his best buddy is OJ
Jaun Williams gets smacked down routinely by just about everybody. He’s one of Fox’s token idiots.
It was amazing...I usually leave when Leo the raging lawyer shows up but he was spot on tonight and that Jaun Williams...I wish Fox would ditch him...he is so stuuuuuuuuuuuupid...but thankfully his kids are conservatives..wonder what keeps them from getting the blinders off Juan?
I just saw that! Watched the ball game earlier, so watching the replays of BOR, Hannity and Greta now.
Juan just clearly showed what a complete fool he is when it comes to racial bias and understanding anything about the justice system.
Leo Terrell is usually dispicable and difficult to listen to, but this evening he did a major smack-down on Juan!
Williams is such a hand wringing doofus.
All the bad of this trial has also brought about some good. I am glad to see it, I hope there are more who stand up.
Here’s a new meme:
Well only Zimmerman knows what happened! Who screamed, who started the fight, etc.? It seems either one of them could have stopped the fight and waited for police. Given that Zimmerman was told not to pursue Martin, why was he not charged with obstruction of justice or interference with a police officer?
The sad part about so many trials is that it is not about finding the truth but about concocting a defense story based on lies that generate reasonable doubt. But reasonable doubt about what? Reasonable doubt has been turned on its head. It is no longer about the facts but about a string of lies that cannot be disproved because dead men cannot talk.
The Florida Stand Your Ground Law is screwed up. Stand your ground is for the victim of criminal aggression not the aggressor. Martin stood his ground and when he got the upper hand was shot through the heart. This is not following the age-old rule of using only equal and necessary force. Zimmerman was a coward to shoot Martin through the heart.
Juan Williams is a racist lackey. Most 8th graders to could wipe the floor with him in a political debate on any subject. He was a product of affirmative action and nothing more. AS such, he represents everything that is wrong with affirmative action and it’s disappointing outcomes.
Wow, that's the dumbest reason I have EVER heard to convict someone of murder!!
If we are going to go there, why not convict him because we don't like the color of his truck? Or the area of town he lives in?
Or, how about convicting him because he CLAIMS to be Hispanic, but his name is Zimmerman!?
It's the latter.
I hate to say this but Fox is loaded with token idiots.
Not as badly as the other stations, but loaded just the same.
Just saw the video HOLY COW for once in my life I actually applauded Leo Terrell..he smacked down those idiots on MSNBC and the race baiters who are using this to score political points and he’s absolutely right..almost makes up for the fact that his buddy is OJ Simpson but damn..I never thought it would be screaming crazy nut Leo Terrell being the voice of reason
Equal? What? Somebody is confused. That's quite a rewrite...
“He was a product of affirmative action and nothing more”
Just like his hero, Alfred E. Obama.
never heard that “retarted” rule before
I don’t think that he sounded like a screaming maniac. I think he was livid with anger at Juan Williams’ insultingly stupid prevaricating.
Was it really Leo Terrell? Shut the front door! What happened, “Wan” Williams?
After seeing this video I had to go outside to verify hell hadn’t frozen over. For anyone who knows who Leo Terrell is, he is a HUGE and I mean HUGE Obama supporter..Obama does no wrong in his eyes..also is a good friend of OJ’s, which is why Sean Hannity mocks him a lot for it..he’s quite the screamer and tonight for once in his life, was absolutely correct
The guy is always loud, but you are correct - this time his voice was trembling with fury. Juan responded with a stunned, glassy-eyed look. He heard the anger, too.
Juan was on PBS for one reasson. Then he made a disparaging remark about muslims and got fired. Now he’s on FOX for one reason and he’s not going to forget it.
Yeah, I know, how about that blithering idiot Tamera Holder for example?
She should always wear one of those little helmets so she doesn't hurt herself.
Is Tamara Holder still banging Jesse Jackson..I guess for Jesse, he hates white people but doesn’t mind boning them
wow...Leo has some sense still!
“This is great entertainment. “
I loved it! Terrell left Juan’s jock strap torn and bloody!
You are closer to the truth than you might imagine. That is precisely the point, especially with Williams. Fox allows deranged liberals to make fools of themselves on national TV just to allow comparison to educated conservatives.
"Shame on you, Juan Williams. You're not a lawyer. Let me be clear, as a civil rights attorney, there was not a race case here at all and the jury got it right."
“We lost, so it doesn’t matter.”
I’m so happy this is posted.
The absolute best of TV.
Leo Terrell on the right side of the law.
Juan Williams will long remember this smack down....lol.
Consider if the gun had been pointed the opposite way when it went off.
Would Trayvon have walked? Most likely, if the jury were fair. After all, no one saw it start. So, no one can contradict the defendant's story.
A lawyered-up Trayvon would have said he was in fear of his life when the creepy ass cracka jumped him and was about to shoot him, except he grabbed the gun and twisted it around at the last second.
Of course, there would have been a lot of dirt in Trayvon's background, but a good defense lawyer and a liberal judge could keep all that from the jury. So, the jury would come to the only logical conclusion, compassion be damned! (Actually, the only just conclusion, even with the dirt, but we have to consider low-information probabilities.)
Of course, one major difference: you wouldn't have heard about unless you lived in Sanford and were a local news junkie (most news junkies are not local news junkies).
Leo Terrel must be a racist..../S
If you're going to construct a martyr for your movement, it doesn't do any good to have a misfit loser in that role.
I wonder if some of these guys are worried that Trayvon Martin is a terrible “icon victim” for the civil rights movement and will end up solidifying support for Zimmerman.
If you’re going to construct a martyr for your movement, it doesn’t do any good to have a misfit loser in that role.
It’s worked so far having one as President, sans the martyr bit....
Amazing: Juan says that Z should have pulled the gun early in the confrontation and threatened T who would have backed off.
The problem with the likes of Juan Williams is that they lie from the first time they open their mouths to the last. He should be stopped at the first lie and not allowed to continue until it is corrected.
Who will be the first host who insists on proper decorum; as in
He talks, then someone else talks, then someone else talks?
When three people talk at once, it’s pretty clear that the host is not really interested in allowing opinions to be aired.
Can anyone explain to me the value of having several people talking / screaming at once?
It gives intelligent people a clear marker for when to use the "OFF" switch.
“Fox allows deranged liberals to make fools of themselves on national TV just to allow comparison to educated conservatives”.
Bill O’Reilly is almost as liberal as Juan Williams. He goes out of his way not to “offend” Obamagabe. He goes against his Catholic faith and believes it’s fine for homosexuals to adopt children. He has said that homosexual “marriage” will not bother him. He will not declare that marriage was instituted by God and is one man and one woman. He believes it’s fine to murder an unborn child if the “mother’s health is in danger” again going against his Catholic faith. Finally in the Zimmerman case he has said Zimmerman was WRONG to get out of his car and follow Martin, when there is nothing at all illegal about leaving your car and following anyone you damn well feel like following, especially if you’re a neighborhood watchman. I am not really a big fan of blowhard Hannity, but at least he does not kiss Obama’s rear end the way BOR does.
